So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 I believe in Jesus and His word,
The word of life, so sweet and free,
And that He came to manifest His love,
And by His death to ransom me.

O how sweet it is to sing,
I believe, I believe!
To Him alone my soul will cling;
I believe on the Son of God.

2 I believe in Jesus and His cross,
And in the blood so freely shed;
I know He takes away the guilt of sin,
And grants me pardon in its stead. [Refrain]

3 I believe in Jesus and His name,
That gives access to mercy’s throne;
No other name can satisfy my faith,
For I am saved by Him alone. [Refrain]
